A SOFTWARE QUALITY firm, SQS, has announced a further expansion of its Irish operation today with the creation of 75 jobs over the next three years.

The new jobs to be created will see 50 based in Dublin with 25 located in the Belfast office. The company said today it is currently looking to recruit for up to 30 skilled positions before the end of this year.

There will be positions available for software quality engineers, software testing managers, business analysts, performance engineers and software test analysts.

SQS was established in Ireland in 2002 and already employs over 200 people across Ireland.

Speaking today, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the growth of the firm is “an example of how the IT and digital sector can play an important role in job creation”.

CEO of SQS Group Dik Vos said that recruitment of such specialist roles “remains a challenge” but working closely with Irish third level colleges and initiatives has proved successful.
